Last Birds perform for the 2020 Saskatchewan Music Awards

(at 19:30)

 

 

Last Birds is a Folk Americana duo consisting of the husband/wife song-writing team, Lindsay Arnold and Mike Davis.    Last Birds follows their success with the Saskatchewan folk group, Hook & Nail, which includes a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for New/Emerging Artist of the Year in 2020.

Mike and Lindsay write songs that focus on close vocal harmonies and interwoven acoustic guitars, taking advantage of the musical intimacy possible in a spouse duo.

Keeping the instrumentation minimal, their songs hearken to the early days of country folk music while exploring dilemmas of the modern world.

A simple "two voices, two guitars" approach to their live performances allows the bittersweet storytelling of their songs to shine through while creating a sound consistently described as "mesmerizing".

Married in white, you have chosen right

Married in green, ashamed to be seen

Married in blue, love ever true

Married in grey, you will go far away

Married in red...

 

 

Last Birds' latest single, Wedding Day,  was inspired by a Victorian rhyme that predicted the success of a marriage based on the colour of the bride's dress.  The thumping song questions western marriage traditions and their relevance today. 

Wedding Day is the second single from Last Birds upcoming EP.  Available on iTunes, Spotify and other major online outlets.
